MUSINGS FROM DIANE:

debt collectorWhy do we have to protect ourselves from people intent on taking what is not theirs?  The only answer must be that they live in hell and hope to bring everyone else into that life so they feel better about themselves.  How do I deal with these scheming demons?  I never trust someone who calls me to solve my problems (they are just salesmen looking for a quick dollar).  Instead, I contact those I trust and ask for guidance or referrals.  Next, I trust my gut and ask lots of questions.  Most importantly, I surround myself with people who follow the golden rule “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
